May 10, 2017

The lads talk about launching a new YouTube series “Filmmaker Flashcards”, start discussing their TV Show concept “5 Alarm”, have their first phone interview with the incredible “James McDougall” from “Love at First Stab”, and “Walking Supply”. The show wraps up by getting back into the new film journey segment “Son of a Pitch!”.

Starting at some point in the next week or two, we are excited to have a new YouTube Series in conjunction with the podcast so that when you Subscribe to our YouTube Channel or follow along on Facebook and Twitter, you can always count on new content from the Fable Forest on Wednesdays!!  “Filmmaker Flashcards”!

  • The BlackList – In 2005 Franklin Leonard surveyed almost 100 film industry development executives about their favorite scripts from that year that had not been made as feature films. Since then the voter pool has grown to 500 film executives!
    • Over 300 Black List screenplays have been made as feature films. Those films have earned over $26 billion in worldwide box office, have been nominated for 264 Academy Awards, and have won 48, including Best Pictures SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, THE KING’S SPEECH, ARGO and SPOTLIGHT, and ten of the last twenty screenwriting Oscars.
